Title
A dialogue on adaptation
Author
Abstract
The work of Patrick Cattrysse and Thomas Leitch represents two dramatically different approaches to adaptation studies. So it came as no surprise that when Cattrysses book Descriptive Adaptation Studies: Epistemological and Methodological Issues was published in 2014, it was sometimes highly critical of Leitch, and Leitchs review of the volume the following year was equally critical of Cattrysse. The surprise came when the two met in person for the first time at the conference on Networks, Nodes, and New Approaches to Adaptation Studies at the Brigham Young University Humanities Center in Provo in February 2017 and found themselves challenged and stimulated by each others presentations, questions, and provocations. Before they left for home, they agreed to try their hand at a dialogue that would crystallize some of their differences in more judicious and useful ways, reframe their disagreements more productively, and consider how much common ground they could find in the questions they were asking if not the answers they proposed to those questions. They hope that the following dialogue, which does not so much resolve as reframe their ongoing debates, will serve as an invitation for other voices to join them, not as partisans of one or the other but as debaters themselves.
